Book Talk Thursday ~ Best School Year Freebie

Oh my!  I am at work right now as this post goes out!  Yes, it is really that time of year for me!  But, it is Thursday, so I am back with Book Talk Thursday!

Since I am back in school today, I have chosen a super cute back to school book that will be a perfect read aloud for the first day of school:  This School Year Will Be the BEST!
This book will be perfect to read to any class on the first day of school!  The book depicts a classroom of students who have a "morning meeting" and talk about what they plan to do during the school year.  Each child tells about what they would like to do or would like to see happen during the school year to make it the best.  One child will "kick the ball into the right goal", and another "won't be the vegetable in the school play."  A different students hopes to have "skateboard day", and another student says "the principal will do something crazy".  In the end the teacher tells her wish to make the school year the best.

I plan to read this with each of my groups of students, even the fifth graders!  After they hear the book, they will each write about what will make this school year the best.  Then I will put it together as a class book.  At the end of the year, we can look back at it and talk about our wishes and if they came true or not!
